Are you going to use the Warn hubs or switch back to some Aisin ones?

This is probably the only 60 I have ever seen with Warn hubs. But they are the premiums at least. They seem a lot more stout than the Warns on my 40s.

When we first took them apart, I thought it was like when you see a 76-78 with a mini truck birf and they had used fender washers and bolts instead of the circlip. But wait a minute??? This is a 60 and it is supposed to have the short birfs. Then I realized that they made this warn hub so it would fit both long and short birfs. If you got long birfs, use the circlip, if you got short ones, use the washer and bolt.

Just out of curiosity I measured how thick the brand-new pads were. Then I measured the groove - exactly 8mm deep. Turns out it is precisely at the wear limit listed in the manual.

After buttoning everything up I went out and bedded in the brakes. No more pulsing, and they stop really well. This rig also has exceptional rear brakes, and a parking brake that works too!

I got some idle issues ever since smog, but I'll put that up in a separate thread.

I've never had any problems with Warn hubs. I have them on 3 out of 4 cruisers. These seemed nicer than the ones on my 40s.
